    Mr. He personally hand twists and finished each leaf in this labor-intensive early-spring biluochun style. Laoshan spring comes much later than southern China, so these early May harvests are picked under cool weather and light sun exposure without their winter greenhouse coverings for sweet and rich flavor. The nuance of the bilochun processing style brings out the subtle minerality of the Laoshan microclimate.


  • 'Thankfully 2019-2020 was a mild winter compared to the last two years, meaning that the plants in China’s northernmost tea growing region did not suffer frost damage. The He Family's plants have been able to recover, and this new recovery growth has been rich and tender, a boon for the He Family after so many difficult years.'
